Brooke, Action For Working Horses and Donkeys, is an international charity that protects and improves the lives of horses, donkeys and mules which give people in the developing world the opportunity to work their way out of poverty.
For 600 million people in some of the poorest places in the world, over 100 million of these animals are the backbone of their communities and the best means of making a living. Without healthy working horses, donkeys and mules, they wouldn’t be able to put food on their tables, send their children to school or build better futures for themselves and their families. However, these animals can often suffer from disease, malnutrition and overwork.
Brooke works hard to delivers significant and lasting change, even in some of the world’s most challenging areas. We use our expertise to train and support owners of horses, donkeys and mules, local vets, farriers, harness makers and animal traders to improve standards of care. Operating in 11 different countries, and funding projects in 4 others, Brooke now reaches over 1.8 million working horses, donkeys and mules – more than any other organisation. We are on target to reach two million working equines each year by 2016.

The Shane Project was founded in April 2002 by Norma McFarlane whose two sons were diagnosed with MS. It is named after her eldest son Shane who sadly passed away in 2003. Shane was finally diagnosed in 1993 after three long years of numerous hospital visits and investigation of his symptoms.
Based on Norma's experience following Shane’s illness, the lack of available support and the isolation, prejudice and stigmatisation that she and her family suffered, prompted to set up The Shane Project with the primary aim being to raise awareness, reduce isolation and help improve the quality of life and independence especially for African/ Caribbean and Ethnic Minority People living with Multiple Sclerosis, their families and their carers.
